SEX AFTER 40

(WARNING SIGNS) You are old and fragile Claiming to be a lion when in bed In some way, you remind me of the walking dead Your bones make a sound when walking across the room Rattling, as if they know your end is near Confusing rigor mortis where muscle mass once stood You say you have stamina that has no end Until now, your back hurts when you move Losing count of every inch that got away!!! With your moods constantly changing, I prefer not to mention the belly fat around your waist Then you have romantic days, you plea to love You chase down a Viagra pill with red fuzz Seemingly, without adding depression to your day Pill's are the only object expanding when swallowed 40 some, and you think you can romp around the room I yawn, yet you are the one tired, next to doom Dusty and old you boxer shorts Can't remember the last time you stayed up late Kicking the bucket every time I talk about S E X Your hairline aged with time, bold and bald I forgot which one you recalled this morning Perhaps these are signs of low testosterone Merely in the meantime............... R.I.P. WILL YA!!! BY: PD

Linda the P.D. it's been a long time. This poem made me laugh. Growing old is a strange thing is it not. I reckon my wife would love this poem, but we both remain committed to each other and the love we share, MJ

Linda, as always, you have written an extraordinary piece. However, there is an adage that reads, "There may be snow on the rooftop, but there is still a fire in the furnace". For some, Viagra has to turn on the pilot light. lol

Old is gold in heart. Old lion lives with old lioness all knows. No one can defeat the long term heart because of treasure of love even after becoming bald and belly fat. You have done this poem so fantastically that every 40 years man will fear to know about his image. It's sure a warning signs. Thanks for bringing lot of ha ha ha... my dear best friend. A great 7. Loved always, bl

Linda you capture reality so very accurately. Sometimes the body gets weak and a lion becomes imprisoned and helpless! Thanks for sharing.

Very amusing poem, PD. And I suppose it does pertain to a lot of men/women. But I guess I'm from good genetic stock. I'm from a big family as well. Fourteen, so my parents had no problemo w/sex after 40. I'm an old lion ticking near 60. But my passions have never aged. I'm just blessed that way. So your poem was like totally foreign to me. Sorry for you guy to whom it was truthfully directed to. Love as always to you, PD.

Heyyyyy!! It can't be so bad after 40. Like Rita said, more like after 80......more like after 60. You nicely captured a real life problem in beautiful lines.
